    Us The Duo and Burt’s Bee Balm

    Husband and wife folk-pop group and Republic Records recording artists, Us The Duo – Michael and Carissa Alvarado – have been making waves this year with their hit single “No Matter Where You Are” and their viral 6-second Vine covers.  Now, the musical duo is lending their talent to Burt’s Bees to create songs inspired by the different Burt’s Bees lip balm flavors.

    Us The Duo vaulted to prominence via Vine early in 2014. Their #6SecondCovers gained major traction, but it was their medleys that launched them to stardom on the platform catching the attention of many publications and causing their social media following to grow over 4 million.



    Tad Kittredge, Associate Director of Marketing at Burt’s Bees explains, “Us The Duo’s lip-centric Vines and their compelling love story caught our attention. We’re thrilled to see how they musically interpret the flavors of our natural lip balms with their flare for delightful six-second riffs. Check out the debut Coconut & Pear Vine with the lyrics, “Coconut & Pear, you’ve got the flowers in your hair. And we’re in love.” Or enjoy the all-new Wild Cherry ode, “Wild Cherry, I like to savor. Pull it out ya pocket and uncap the flavor.”

    Strawberry Stick

    We made our Carmex stick formula extra-protective against the elements. Strawberry Stick provides broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sun protection and up to 80 minutes of water resistance. All that, with a pleasant strawberry flavor.

    • Our formula adds petrolatum because it aids moisturization and creates a long-lasting water barrier
    • Formulas with cocoa seed butter help moisturization.

    Perfect Pout

    People always say the brows frame the face and make the look just that much better. Well in my opinion, its the lips that make the statement. The lips are equally important, if not the most, in every look whether day or night. Your lips could be the star of the show or create a soft background for your eyes. Bottom line, no matter what your lips are a big deal so I thought i’d share with you the way I achieve my perfect pout.
    I start out with smooth lips. After I brush my teeth, while the brush is still moist, I brush my lips lightly so remove dead skin. Using a dry toothbrush can be too harsh for your lips. I also like the way the mintyness on my toothbrush makes my lips feel.
     After brushing off the dead skin, pat your lips dry with a soft towel and moisturize with a very thin layer of your favorite lip balm.
    Then using a lip liner, line your lips. If you have smaller lips, line the very outside of your lip line for the illusion of fuller lips. Make sure you line them and shape them well because this is the foundation for your perfect pout. Fill in the rest of your lips to create a canvas for your lipstick.
    Now apply your lipstick evenly. Be sure that this isn’t a super dry lipstick even if you’re going for a matte look. Dry lipstick may look good when you first apply it but after a while you’ll start seeing it  making your lips look cracked.

    After you apply your lipstick, it’s time to really perfect your lips. A lot of people like to conceal their lips before they put on lip color to get the perfect lip line but I’ve found that as your lip color comes off, so does the concealer since it’s mainly on your lips as well. I like to apply my lipstick then go back and conceal around my lip line with a creamy concealer. Use a creamy concealer instead of a cakey one so you get a smooth, sheer wash. This will also help you erase any mistakes you made while lining your lips or putting on your lipstick.
    Last but certainly not least, loose powder. Set the concealer around your lips with loose powder. Use a small concealer brush to dust the powder generously making sure the concealer won’t budge. This way when you’re eating or as your lipstick fades throughout the night, your lip line still looks perfect.
    Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre $52 (my favorite loose powder EVER)
    This quick trick has never failed me. Even as my lipstick starts to fade throughout the day or as the night goes on, my lips still look fab! No more worries about lip color smearing in the wrong places and feathering past your lip line. The concealer acts like a little barrier preventing color to travel. Now you can be free to eat and drink as you please worry-free (about your lips, that is).
